Punch Imlach's whole life has been hockey: when he joined the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1958 he'd already spent 20 years in the game. Within three months, he was running the team entirely as coach and manager. In the next 11 years, he took the Leafs from last place to first, won four Stanley Cups, and was fired.
This is Punch's own story of growing up with hockey, and of reaching the pinnacle of his ambitions with the Leafs in the Sixties. He takes you back to the days of the six-team NHL, and to all the greats of that era - legends like Rocket Richard, Bobby Orr, Johnny Bower, Dick Duff and Frank Mahovlich.
A companion book took the bestselling Heaven and Hell in the NHL, Hockey is a Battle covers the early years in the life of this Canadian hockey legend.
